The Coen Brothers' A Serious Man just made one hell of a first impression at the Toronto Film Festival. Incontention's Kris Tapley just called it a "miracle movie" while Hollywood Elsewhere's Jeff Wells ("brilliant") and Variety's Todd McCarthy are equally enamored.
Of course, A Serious Man is a wacky, wicked mistanthropic black comedy about Jews in 1960's-70's Minnesota. Its got a no-name cast and one of the craziest trailers of the year. Anything by the Coen Brothers and I'm all for it, first in line, fervently awaiting. I like my Fargo, No Country for Old Men Coens better, but I'm so psyched for this now.
